Cedar Point will transform Soak City to the brand-new, 18-acre Cedar Point Shores Water Park in 2017.

With a nod to its lakeside surroundings, Cedar Point Shores will feature three completely new water attractions, new and upgraded food and merchandise locations and more. All-new amenities will be added for guests to enjoy the one-of-a-kind setting of Lake Erie and Cedar Point's mile-long beach.

New attractions for water lovers of all ages are coming ashore in 2017. They include:

/ Point Plummet - a six-story-tall, four-person aqua-drop body slide that will simultaneously send four guests on a nearly vertical free fall when the floor drops out from under them. The four separate 400-foot-long slides will send riders through a series of flat loops and s-curves for an amazing water rush.

/ Starboard Surge & Portside Plunge - located on the same structure as Point Plummet, these two, five-story tube slides can accommodate guests riding alone or with a friend and will send them through an enclosed tunnel before shooting them out into the sun through intense drops and turns.

/ Lakeslide Landing - a new family splashground with 12 kid-sized water slides that line the perimeter of a zero-depth-entry pool, giving kids their own mini water thrills while parents can relax under shade structures and enjoy an oversized lounge and sun deck area.

The water park's existing slides and attractions will receive makeovers as well, with most receiving new names highlighting the unique beachside location.

Cedar Point Shores will also boast a completely new main entrance, a new poolside bar, new family changing/showering areas, more lounge chairs, additional shade, improved landscaping and unobstructed views of Lake Erie.

Updated cabanas on either side of the massive 500,000-gallon wave pool will be the perfect place to relax for large groups or families. Upgrades include free Wi-Fi, charging stations, ceiling fans, TVs and dedicated food and beverage service.
